Research unit for superabrasive and multitasking machining

Research and development unit for advanced applications of super abrasive machining for aeronautical applications in a multitasking machine. Includes a 5-axis HERMLE Multitasking machining center that combines milling, turning, and grinding. It has a main spindle power of 80 Kw and a maximum working diameter of 1200 mm, along with a torque motor on the C axis. This machine is oriented towards the manufacture of integrated blade rotors such as Impellers and Blisks. The unit is complemented by high-resolution Metrology and Inspection services (GE Digital Radiography X-CUBE model), necessary for the type of sectors for which this technology is intended. It has two coordinate measuring machines of Cartesian kinematics from the manufacturer Mitutoyo, one of which is for contact measurement and the other for non-contact measurement (includes laser raster).
